April 12 marks the birthday of the sadly departed Bobby Moore - the player heralded as the greatest captain in England's history, and the only man to lift the coveted World Cup trophy for the Three Lions.

Moore, who would have been 72 this year, may have passed away 20 years ago, but the West Ham hero is immortalised outside Wembley by a statue and, until the unlikely event that England become world champions once more, he remains their ultimate legend.

The Rolls Royce of a centre-back was the skipper of Sir Alf Ramsey's Wingless Wonders, who clinched the Jules Rimet on home soil in 1966; beating West Germany 4-2 in a contentious final at the self-proclaimed Home of Football.

Although the day in which Moore would have toasted his birthday marks a day of reflection, GMF have decided to celebrate the occasion of the former England defender's birth by remembering some of the greatest teams ever to win the World Cup

Brazil, unsurprisingly, feature in our list of five teams given their dominance of the competition since its conception, but there are also some modern inclusions, and some that may create debate.

As ever, we would encourage you to have your say in the comments section below - and why not let us know if your top five would be any different.
